The Natural Ways I Prevent & Fight Sinus Infections

I’ve suffered from allergies for as long as I can remember, and where allergies go, sinus infections seem to follow. I used to get one bad sinus infection per year. But then, in my late twenties, that number sky rocketed. I was going to the doctor and prescribed heavy doses of antibiotics every three months.

I’ve struggled with allergy symptoms, sure, I’ve felt the beginnings of an infection, absolutely, but I’ve fought it off with my new all natural routine, keeping myself out of the doctor’s office, off an antibiotic, and feeling so much better. Seriously. I can’t even tell you how much better I feel. It’s like I’m a new person. Continue reading “The Natural Ways I Prevent & Fight Sinus Infections”
